This Georgia Bulldog cake was a 1/4 sheet, chocolate cake. I used buttercream icing to support homemade fondant. I made and colored the fondant a day ahead of time.
After the cake was cooled and iced, I let set in fridge. Covered cake and cut a black fondant outline to mat the bulldog. I used black gel icing to draw the onto the fondant after drawing the details on it with an exacto knife. This way, I could see my lines easier AND the scores would cradle the icing so it wouldn’t run while I was finishing. I don’t have a “steady hand” so I needed that. That’s why they call it, “EXACTO!”
Twisted the red and black and applied it with a little water. Stayed on for a whole day until delivery!
